The Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon held a Eucharistic procession through the city on Saturday for the intention of peace in the city.
Praying before the exposed Blessed Sacrament during the Oct. 17 event, Archbishop Alexander Sample said: "Mary, your son is the Prince of Peace. Through your intercession, may he bring peace to our cities and our communities, may his peace reign in our hearts."
The prayers began with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, followed by a procession to the North Park Blocks, where the archbishop led a rosary and performed an exorcism. Archbishop Sample prayed over the city the "Exorcism Against Satan and the Fallen Angels" from the Roman Ritual.
The procession returned to the cathedral, concluding with Benediction and the Angelus.
